Jens “Jeb” Bergensten grew up programming games, building levels for the venerable game Lode Runner on his mother's Apple Macintosh II, and started his own game company, Oxeye Game Studio, in the mid 2000s. After joining Mojang in late 2010 and expressing interest in Minecraft, the game's founder-guru Markus Persson allowed Jens to work on the sandbox construction game—and shortly before the first ever MineCon in Las Vegas in November 2011, Jens was made creative lead for Minecraft, putting him at the helm of the flagship product for the small Swedish game studio that Microsoft bought for $2.5 billion in November 2014.
